Entry
EC 3.2.1.87                 Enzyme                                 

Name
capsular-polysaccharide endo-1,3-alpha-galactosidase;
polysaccharide depolymerase;
capsular polysaccharide galactohydrolase
Class
Hydrolases;
Glycosylases;
Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
Aerobacter-capsular-polysaccharide galactohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Random hydrolysis of (1->3)-alpha-D-galactosidic linkages in Aerobacter aerogenes capsular polysaccharide
Comment
Hydrolyses the galactosyl-alpha-1,3-D-galactose linkages only in the complex substrate, bringing about depolymerization.
